Houston-based Cardtronics reported second quarter revenues of $77.2 million, a 5.3% increase over 2Q/06. However, the Company posted a net loss for the second quarter of $5.6 million, compared to net income of $0.8 million for the same period last year. Cardtronics says the revenue increase was primarily attributable to the Company’s focus on growth in its United Kingdom ATM operations. The loss was related to selling, general, and administrative costs and vault cash costs, as well as higher depreciation expense amounts associated with additional ATM deployments in the United Kingdom and Mexico and incremental development costs associated with the Company’s in-house processing conversion efforts. Average transacting ATMs for the second quarter totaled 25,484, which represents a decrease of 1.1% from 2Q/06. Average cash withdrawal transactions per ATM per month during the second quarter increased 5.9% to 432, and average revenues per ATM per month in the second quarter increased 6.4% to $967. In July, the Company acquired the ATM portfolio of 7-Eleven, adding 5,500 high-volume ATMs and Vcom units to its portfolio, making Cardtronics the largest ATM network in the world.
